    Thanks for the reminder! I have a set of them I got direct from Azim way back when for my Botcon set, but a second set for upcoming figures is a great idea.

    I ordered a set, hopefully the Overlord blaster should fit in the hand of the upcoming Leader class version.

    Thanks for the tip/reminder. Those will sit in my PoL until Siege hits

    Of course I don't have TR Overlord or Metalhawk yet but I do have their mold brothers and these excellent Renderform weapons. Hawk Saber fits well but the Giga Blaster's handle will need some lengthening as it's seems just a bit too short and is only held loosely.

    Oh excellent, thanks for testing that. I'm sure I can figure out a way to make a more secure fit

    Probably won't work in the tank mode, right?

    Good question! It ALMOST worked, but sadly without modifying the back of the gun it doesn't fit that well. I sawed off the peg at the end of the gun (I have no plans on using it with Botcon Overlord anymore anyway) and you can kinda jam it in there that way with that mod, but you still can't close the two halves of the tank turret completely and the barrel/gun is pointing downward by the way the handle plugs into the tank. There's no other 5mm hole for the gun to plug into on the rest of the tank either :(

    I picked up the two pack a few weeks back intending to use the sword for the new Metal Hawk, but somehow it didn't even occur to me that I could use the gun with TR Overlord. lol

    Well, that ain't half bad! Maybe if we yell loudly enough, Venksta will make a revised, TR Overlord-compatible version! The current one will look good in his hand at least. Maybe Takara's version will have more guns anyway.
